Argument: Immigrants can burden education systems and taxpayers
"Taxpayers Should Not Subsidize College for Illegal Aliens." Federation for American Immigration Reform: "Efforts are under way in several states to allow illegal aliens to pay steeply discounted in-state tuition at public colleges and universities—rates not available to American citizens from other states. As state universities across the country increasingly limit enrollment, increasing the intake of illegal aliens into these schools will mean fewer opportunities and less aid for U.S. citizens and legal immigrants.
States that offer in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens are actively working against the federal government’s effort to combat illegal immigration, harming citizens and legal immigrants, and opening themselves up to substantial costs and criminal liability.
Virginia's Attorney General studied the issue of in-state tuition for illegal alien students and came to the conclusion that the expenditure of state resources for that purpose is illegal."
